• On the death of the testator, an executor of the will or an heir of the deceased testator can apply for probate.
  • The court will ask the other heirs of the deceased if they have any objections to the will.
  • If there are no objections, the court will grant probate (please see section on Probates).
  • In case any objections are raised by any of the heirs, a citation has to be served, calling upon them to consent.
  • This has to be displayed prominently in the court.
  • Thereafter, if no objection is received, the probate will be granted.
  • It is only after this that the will comes into effect.
